Eleven French will compete on the London tracks today, at FIP ​​Rise Rocks Lane, after the qualification of Vanbauce/Rouanet and Hugounenq/Vincent and the retirement of Vives/Inzerillo.

Originally thirteen, we did not come far from having “only” nine French players present in London. Indeed, if Thomas Vanbauce et Nicolas Rouanet qualified against Ignacio Téllez Rodríguez (1807) and Juan Cruz Forastello (414), 6/2 6/3, Arthur Hugounenq et Pierre-Vincent almost left the English capital.

Indeed, Arthur and Peter bowed in the final round of qualifying against Sandy Farquharson (1330) and Tom Farquharson (1330). A defeat in three sets 4/6 6/1 6/7. Despite everything, they were able to benefit from dropping a pair in the main draw and are therefore qualified for the first round.

It was his brother who one day told him to accompany him on a track. padel, since then, Gwenaëlle has never left the court. Except when it comes to going to watch the broadcast of Padel Magazine, World Padel Tour… or Premier Padel…or the French Championships. In short, she is a fan of this sport.
